While conversations with the city of Nashville are on-going, the Tennessee Titans are reportedly hoping to get approved for 25 percent capacity at home games this season.

According to Titans beat writer Paul Kuharsky, this was the initial request the team made. If approved, the Titans would have over 17,000 fans at Nissan Stadium when they play their home opener on September 20 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Indications are the Titans’ initial request was for 25 percent capacity. The building accommodates 69,143 for football, so that would be 17,286.

At this point, it would be a major victory to get any fans in the stadium, as there’s a chance the Titans play their home games without anyone in attendance.

If the latter happens and no fans are allowed in the stadium for any of the team’s eight home games, Forbes’ Mike Ozanian estimates that the Titans could lose about $110 million in revenue this season.

The potential loss of revenue from no fans attending games league-wide has created an uncertain financial future for the NFL. The salary cap is expected to decrease in 2021 by as much as $23 million (from $198.2 million in 2020 to $175 million in 2021), although that cap number has the potential to be higher depending on exactly how much revenue is lost.
